In the Senate, on the 16th ult. Mr
Woodbury wished to make a few remarks
Impropriety of prin.ing -he .report, oi j
the Secretary of the Treasury. He said it
was filled with gross errors and mit.state
ments, and if he were permitted to make
bis remarks, he could show that on these
very errors and misstatements, the call ol
this extra Session had been based.
Mr. Clay having given his consent, Mr.
Woodbury proceeded and pointed out
some most extraordinary discrepancies,
which we find thus alluded to in some
editorial remarks of the Globe:
Mr. Woodbury, in his exposition to-day,
showed from Mr. Ewing's own report,
that the assumption that there was a debt
lhat must be provided for, and a deficit in ,
te means of the Treasury to be made up,
which req-iired the meeting of Congress in
May, was wholly without foundation, fie
took the icport to prove that both on the
4th of March and 3 1st of May, it was ad
mitted that' the Treasury had a surplus on
hand and he showed that but for the ex
tra session and the new expenditures called
for, tliesime full condition of the Treasu
ry would have been found in September as
"1 May. And Mr
snowed from the report, that not with
Ending the clamour raised through the
jewsp:ir,fTS about a forty million debt lefi
behind it by the late administration that
't the report, is obliged to pare down this
0ty million debt to about six millions for
the whole year I S41 ; and if a deduction

present Administration, the pretended
orty million incumbrance will shrink to
less than three! This Mr. Woodbury
Provedclearly from the dataof Mr. Ewing's
J,ePrt, and made it apparent to the whole
etate, that the various assumed charges
nd Probable defects heaped up in the re
Prtto make a conjectural deficit in the
nances, ig as egregious a humbug as the
'ounuin debt of forty millions which the
reP'rt itself dissipates.
Un of e finest points of Mr. Wood
r.v s exposition, was that in which he
0;vedthe absolute contradiction between
e report furnished by the Secretary to
J0ne3sand thai furnished by him to the
resident. Mr. Woodbury compared
nern together, where setting forth the
state of tfie Treasury, under the same
heads, and proved lucontestabiy that they
disigreed in all; and in some, to more th in
the amount of millions. One remarkable
feature of difference is this: Mr.. Ewing.
in his own reoort to Congress, stales that
the debt, at the end of lrvl . vvi!J be "bout
six millions; in his statement, coming
through the President's Message, he makes
it upwards of eleven millions.
IJi.it we will not anticipate e clean
shrift which Mr. Woodbury Ins made,
of the botched up account given bv his
successor, of tlv.; finances. We will lay
tills speech, which founds itself at every
step on the unquestionable data of Mr.
living's own office, in a few days before
the public. There is not a democrat in
the Union who will not read it with the
highest gratification. He will find in it a
perfect triumph. The federalists will

From Ihe Raleigh Stand ird.
The Repeal. Ala. State Convention,
recently held in New Hampshire, the fol
lowing resolution wsa introduced and una
nimously adopted:- ..
llesolcr.d, That, the Democratic party of
New Hampshire will support no candidate
for a seat in The Congress of the United
States, who wil.l not when requested there
to pledge himself o goyor the absolute
and unconditional repeal of the charter
of a National Ranic which may be created
by the dominant pari v.
Had the Federal pariV presented a fair
issue to the people there might be some
ground of complaint on their part, relative
to this proposition. But as'ihey basely con
cealed their own intention while misrepre
senting the motives and actions of their
opponents, let them ab'de the issue. Let
this matter be placed before the people in its

shall conceive that they are not bound by
contracts made though trickery, fraud and
laiscin,.;:!, let them so sp?ak, and elect
men to the next Congress -who will repeat
the Charter. This is our opinion. We
shall be glad to gee our Democratic breth
ren sustain it through weal or woe, regard
less of the hypocritical cant of federalism
about contracts "between the general gov
ernment and ihe Slates, and the States and
the people." Every contract madethrough
false pretences is legally and morally void.
The people know whether they contracted
for a National Bank or not, at the last
eleciion. The Federalists have shown
their contempt of the obligations of gov
ernment when the transaction was fair and,
well understood in 1 he case of Blair and
Hives. Let us profit by their example so
far as to abrogate a measure, brought about
by the most consummate deception
and political cheatery. But not only

If individuals may be wronged and c! etcd

successors for a quirter of a century, and
for that period deprive the people of their
rights and privileges of republican freemen,
ina contract operating against the pub

if there is to be a distinction between agree
ments made with the "servile route," and
those with wealthy corporators, let the
people say so, and we shall settle down,
by the sovereign will, under the domina

igarchy, as ever, "fattened on the public

Rela Badger and Pipe Laying
will be recollected that this celebrated
"pipe-layer" was rewarded for his election
eering services, by the appointment of Na
val Agent at Philadelphia. The Albany
Argus thus speaks of this worthy:
"It was proved before a committee of
the Pennsylvania Legislature in IS39, that
bribes were offered and paid to change the
result of the polls. A witness testifies that
Bela Badger, the federal return judge
the Northern Liberties, paid him sixty dol
lars as a reward to reduce the Democratic
majority in that ward, and promised two
hundred dollars if he would reduce W fifty
votes. Badger also furnished him with
federal voles, with instructions to palm
them after dark upon his democratic friends
who could not read."
We have been asked frequently the moan
ing of the phrase "pipe-layer." During
the recent canvass the "whigs" obtained
votes from abroad to swell their strength
in certain places. Each voter wanted w .s
designated as a "foot of pipe." Mr. Badg
er, therefore, instead of saying to his New
York correspondent, "1 send you thirty
s -oundrels, ready to perjure themselves and
vote the whig ticket in your city" would
write: ! send you thirty feet of pipe, the
receipt of which you will please acknowl
edge." This was Ihe com.mon term and
well understood by Badgerand other scamps
engaged in the nefarious business. The pipe
for which thoe fellows pretended to traffic
we believe to be the tubes laid beneath the
ground to convey water to different parts of
our .ormcrn cities. 10.

Uncertain t y.( f life. The Journal of
Commerce records-the following affecting
iljistiation of the uncertainty of life: A
Mr. . William Burtch. aged 22 years 11
months and 15 days, was married at Wood
stock on the 19ih inst., to Sarah, daughter
of John Hatch, Esq., aged 22 years 11
months and 14 days. On the 31st ult.
Mr. Burtch died of the scarlet fever, and
on the 4th inst. Sarah, his youthful wid
ow, in the hope of a glorious resurrcc
Jl strange place to die. The Vicksburg
Whig, of the 29th ultimo, sys that a
man was found on the day previous on the
roof ofa three story brick store, having
apparently be?n dead for some weeks, as
his bod)' was horribly mutilated by the
!;!?ds that had been flying about him. Who
he was, whence he came, or how lie get
there, no one could tell. He was unknown
by all about there; but had chosen the
strange, grand death-bed, where in mid air,
far above the dull earth, alone in the midst
of that populous city, with the blue skies
for a canopy and the stars for watchers, his
spirit had passed to its long home.
Rebellion in Jirkunsas. One of the
grossest and most atrocious violations of
the law, and defiance lo the constituted
authorities lhat we have ever heard of, re
cently occurred in Phillips county, Ark.
The regular May term of the Circuit Court
beinff about to be held in that county, much
properly being advertised to be sold, and
many executions lo oe levieo, a pennon
signed by 200 names was addressed to
Judge Baker, praying him not lo hold the
Court. J hat luncnonary in me iiuuurauie
discharge of his duty, proceeded to Hel
ena and was on his way to the Court,
when the Hall of Justice was forcibly taken
possession of by 20 armed men who bar
ricaded the door, refused admission to any
person and threatened the sheriff with
death, in case he .attempted, resistance.
The sheriff made a requisition upon the
Colonel of the county for fifty men to ena
ble him to suppress the rebellion. After
this he resigned and the Coroner imme
diately followed his example, so that there
being no officer to enforce the law and the
power to appoint a sheriff tern, devolv
ing on one who himself was among the
insurgents, the holding of the Court was
wholly prevented, and Judge Baker re
turned to Columbia.
The rebels had possession of the Court
House at the last advices, and no attempt
had been made to dislodge them. This is
absolute High Treason to the State of Ark
ansas, and should be punished in the most
signal and severe manner. A7. O. Bee.

He had been hard at work, and being un

to coo! himself. The result wa, he did

Horrible Murder. A young lady re
ceived an invitation one day last week.
purporting to tome from a young man to
whom she was engaged to be married, to
visit a family of her acquaintance at Green
River, Massachusetts. Mrs. Lane, a wid
ow lady of lhat phice, invited her to her
houseand ottered her a glass of beer, which
upon tasting she refused to drink. By the
tirgent persuasions of Miss Lane, th
daughter, she was however induced to
swallow the beer, which was found to con
tain a large quantity of corrosive subli
mate. There is but little hone that she
will survive. The effect was so sudden
that in a very few moments her tongue
was so swollen as to protiude from her
mouth. It is said that Mrs. Lane was de
sirous that the. gentleman to whom the
lady was engaged should marry her own
daughter, and that she resorted to this mur
derous scheme to accomplish her purpose.

(JThe Norfolk Beacon, of the 17th
inst. contains a correspondence between
Lowis Tappan, of N. V, and Lloyd N.
Williams, a lawyer of Norfolk. .Mt. Tap
pan made a proposition to Mr. W. to be
come an agent fur the discovery of insol
vent Merchants and Traders, doing busi
ness in the City; the Agent's work to be an
inquiry into the standing of every business
man, his ability to meet his engagements,

the proposition an infamous one. The
following is pait of his reply to Mr. Tap
pan. 'Indeed, sir, I doubt if even from a

Massacre of the Christian Insurgents
of Bulgaria by the. Turks. A Writer in
the Aligemine Zeitung writes from Bel
grade 2d of May: "The combat between
the Albanian troops of the P;icha of Nissa
and the Christian inhabitants entrenched
by Alexinczzc, which took place the day
before yesterday, was blood'1 in the ex
treme. The Christians fought bravely,
but their soldiers were too widely scatter-,
ed to resist the close columns of the Al
banians. The insurgents although fight
ing for their women, their children, and
their aged for their hearths and movea
ble property against the ravaging Mos
lem, were obliged at length to giveaway.
The conduct of the Albanians after their
victory vvas horrible. They murdered
the ehildien and old people, who were in
capable of resistance, in cold blood, impa
led every prisoner who was taken with
arms in his hands; laid the villages which
they stormed in ashes, violated women and
girls, and threw them into the flaming
ruins of their habitations. Several thous

"The principal author of these outrages
was one Jose Castro, the prefect, or head
police magistrate of California. This Cas
tro is an old revolutionizer himself, and
has for sometime, as it i?, supposed, been
ambitions of becoming military command
ant of California, ignorantly supposing that
his zeal against foieigners would recom
mend him to the favorable notice of the
Mexican Government The 47 prisoners
were put in charge of this Castro, but on
his arrival at San Bias, ins ead of finding
himself a great man, ps he anticipated, he
found himself in jail through the English
and American Consuls at that place. Af
ter being in jail twenty-two days, he was
ordered to Mexico to gie an account of
himself to the General Government. One
ef the prisoners, from the State of Missis
sippi, Nathan Dayly, has been released by
death, the other 4G arc yet prisoners at
Tepic, a city inland from San Bla, whero
they are provided for by the Consuls, and
awaiting their trial. Their acquittal is cer
tain, and heavy damages will unfpiestiona
bly be obtained from the Mexican Govern
ment, if the Governments of the U. S. and
England have any regard for the rights of
their citizens residing in foreign countries.
